The thumbnail I chose was the one of Harry hanging out of his window on the Hogwarts Express, looking forward to his new life (and the back features creepy forest/Voldie). I sent my first sketch out to my mentorship classmates for a critique and got some great feedback. Here’s the result!
Now onto painting! I printed the sketch lightly onto watercolor paper, then did my final drawing on top. Just started painting tonight… watercolor always has a rough beginning. It looks absolutely hideous right now. But I know eventually the hideousness transforms into awesomeness. It’s just scary in the beginning.
This month Rebecca is actually on vacation in Europe doing book and card signings, so we have been without her wonderful class critiques. We’re all a little freaked out since this assignment is such a big deal. We can do it! I’m looking forward to her comments… I hope she approves of my piece! Gotta get used to working without the mentorship since it ends soon.
